Harrison Hot Springs: A Seasonal Parking Success
Successful Paid Parking Pilot
In 2016, the Village of Harrison Hot Springs chose to experiment with the implementation of a paid parking system during its busy summer months. The Village chose Precise ParkLink, an industry expert, to lead the pilot project with hopes that a paid parking system would be given a fair shot within the tight-knit community.
Harrison Hot Springs and the surrounding area offer great hiking, biking, golfing, fishing and other water activities, heritage sites, family friendly attractions, and more. Sandy beaches hug the coast of Harrison Lake – the largest body of fresh water in Southwestern B.C.
Challenges and Goals
During the summer months, Harrison Hot Springs is a tourist hotspot. The limited beachside parking available to residents and tourists, as well as the numerous outdoor activities and heritage sites makes the village an ideal location for parking services during the summer season. However, when it came to parking, Harrison Hot Springs faces the challenge of peak versus low seasons, and of course, the worry of implementing the village’s first-ever paid parking system.
With Precise ParkLink’s help, the village’s paid parking trial was a success. To date, Harrison Hot Springs enforces paid parking only during the summer months and has partnered with Precise ParkLink for the last three years. Precise ParkLink has been working with Harrison Hot Springs to develop a parking program that works well for their B.C. community, and has introduced effective initiatives, such as Parking Ambassadors, who welcome and assist motorists.
Precise ParkLink is proud to be parking partners with The Village of Harrison Hot Springs.
